Minister launches new incentives for higher education study

Five new initiatives will be introduced by the Malaysian government next month to attract more youths to further their education at the tertiary level, says Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin, writes Remar Nordin for The Star.

The Higher Education Minister said that this included introducing a flexible studying environment, shortening the course period, and providing more industrial and work-based learning.

“We are aware that some of the concerns of the students not furthering their studies are due to the work market, unemployment, and having a low salary despite having a higher education level … All of these matters are being addressed; that is why the ministry is pushing for closer cooperation between the university and industry so that all graduates’ products are marketable,” he said.
